Paul Johnson’s Three Key Passing Game Concepts off the Triple Option

Triple Pass is utilized when the defense forces the Quarterback to pull and pitch the ball.  When the defense does this, whether they consciously realize this or not, they must utilize their safety and corner to play the Quarterback/Pitch in order to get an alley defender.  This means they have just sacrificed pass coverage for run support.  There are three concepts off the Triple that matter the most to Paul Johnson, and he articulated this in a clinic talk in Colorado.

1- Vertical (run against a middle-of-the-field safety)

Constraining the Single-High Safety with Triple Pass. PR- Vert-Skinny PA- Vert-Wheel OL- Slide Away BA- Pitch-Kick BR- Deep Drag Q- Veer Pass Steps B- Veer Path-Kick

2- Switch (this is built into the call when there is a playside safety)Triple Pass versus 4-3 Cloud. Playside Receiver- Vert-Skinny (playside safety) Playside A- Vert-Wheel (playside safety) OL- Slide Away BA- Pitch-Kick BR- 17-yard drag Q- Triple Pass Steps B- Veer Path-Block 1st threat off PT

3- Titan (this is an independent tag)Triple Pass Titan PR- eight-yard stop PA- Corner route OL- slide away BA- pitch-kick BR- post Q- Triple Pass Steps--throw corner to stop B- Veer Path-Kick

Utilize these concepts when the defense forces a pull/pitch as they have just sacrificed pass coverage for run support.

The Play to Run versus the Easy Stunt is Rocket Toss

The Easy Stunt is an exchange between #2 (pitch key) and #1 (read key).  How the Easy Stunt works is listed below.

The Easy Stunt with Blood Stunt-Like Speed. Quarterback takes the snap, seats the ball, hops into the Playside A-gap, points the ball, gives to the B, unless 2 runs through the B or 1 can tackle the B. If so, the Quarterback reseats the ball, steps with his playside foot, replaces #1 and scores unless #2 steps at him. If so, the Quarterback parallel pitches. The key to this drill is to make the Quarterback urgently and accurately pitch the ball. Whoever is responsible for the Quarterback is running a straight line to get to him in order to make him pitch.

On Triple versus the Easy Stunt the Quarterback takes the snap, seats the ball, hops into the Playside A-gap, points the ball, gives to the B, unless 2 runs through the B or 1 can tackle the B.  If so, the Quarterback reseats the ball, steps with his playside foot, replaces #1 and scores unless #2 steps at him.  If so, the Quarterback parallel pitches.  The key to this drill is to make the Quarterback urgently and accurately pitch the ball.  Whoever is responsible for the Quarterback is running a straight line to get to him in order to make him pitch.


If you still can’t get 4+ yards running Triple versus the Easy Stunt, come back the next play and run Rocket Toss.  The blitzing linebacker (#2) takes himself out of the play as he can’t recover to get on the Backside A-Back running the Toss.

You’ve Worked Hard All Week on the Triple Option–Now It’s Time to Call the Game

Playcalling in the Triple Option is pretty basic.


1- Run Triple Option and if you get 4+ yards run Triple Option again.

If the Triple is working, keep running it–and to the same side.


2- If you don’t get 4+ yards on Triple Option with a give read, get the ball outside with Rocket or Zone Option.

Obviously, the defense is trying to box you inside, so get the ball outside.


3- If you don’t get 4+ yards on Triple Option with a pull read, throw Triple Pass.

When the defense makes you pull the ball, the Safety and Corner have to get on the Quarterback/Pitch by sacrificing pass coverage for run support–thus you throw the ball.


You worked hard all week–now it’s time to win.  Call the Triple Option Football Academy at 570.332.0265.

Explosive Plays Occur Through the Triple Option Passing Game

Triple Option Football Academy

Have more explosive plays than your opponent, and you’ll win 86 percent of the time.

SB Nation stats guru Bill Connelly analyzed yard per play numbers from every regular-season college football game in 2013 (nearly one million plays in all) and found that teams with a per-play advantage as small as 0.5-to-1 yard win 72 percent of the time, by an average of 7.7 points. Hold an edge of 1-to-1.5 yards per play, and you’ll win 86 percent of games, with an average margin of victory by 13.2 points. The numbers get more slanted from there, up to a 5-yard per play advantage leading to a 100 percent victory rate by an average of 51 points.

Utilize Over Green Rocket Blast to Get Great Numbers and Angles on the Perimeter

Triple Option Football Academy

The Over Green formation allows the A-Back to align on the line of scrimmage.

This gives him a better angle to down block (blast) the C-gap defensive linemen, which further allows the Playside Tackle and Guard to get around to the perimeter.

The numbers on the perimeter are more favorable in this situation, and Rocket Blast works well when this happens:

Running “Canada” when the Will Takes the B-Back on Triple Option

Canada can be utilized when the Will tackles the B-Back on Triple.

Here, the Quarterback fakes the Triple and follows the A-Back who starts his pitch route and then leads through the open gap to the Will.

The diagram shows you how this is all done.
